Wednesday, March 30, Village Creek State Park, Wynne, AR, Day 4 - 0 Miles, 6,348.1 Miles for the Trip

Another very warm night. The low overnight was 69°F, and inside the trailer it only got down to 71°F. Very quiet here - I am the only one left in this campground loop. It might get interesting - predictions are for severe thunderstorms, possible tornados, etc until 7:00 this evening. At least the bathrooms (storm shelters) are close...

Around 2:00 I got a neighbor - a single axle Lance. Unfortunately, as he started to set up the skies opened up. While a trailer is much better than a tent, it is still a pain to set up in the rain. According to my radar app, it looks like the rain will be heavy for an hour or so. We are also getting the first thunder & lightning, although the wind is still fairly light. The main front went through around 3:00 with heavy rain, but little wind. There are tornado warnings south & east of us, but so far we are just getting rain & lightning. It even slowed down enough that my new neighbor got out of the trailer and cranked down his stabilizers.

Around 4:30 a larger tow behind trailer pulled in. Tried a couple of sites, then left, probably to register. They are setting up in one of the larger sites on the other side of the loop. Of course, because they are setting up, the rain started up again in earnest. Behind the front the temperature cooled down from the mid 70's to 58°F, and dropping. While not all that cold, with the damp it felt cold enough that I fired up the electric heater on low.

Dinner was a Saffron Road Lamb Saag with Basmati Rice. The first time I've had this one of their meals. OK, but I'll stick with the Chicken Biryani.

Until Next Time -
